About Sierra Sugrue
Aloha! I am so honored and excited to share Aloha Falls with you. It is my dream of Hawaiian beauty and spirit. The past decade of my life has been spent nurturing the land here on the Big Island and pursuing the wisdom of various healing arts, including: massage, energy medicine, yoga, and plant medicine. My partner Troy and I focus much of our attention on creating the beauty of Aloha Falls.
Sierra Sugrue purchased this House in 2009
Why Sierra Sugrue chose Hilo
Hilo is the most gorgeous place in all of Hawaii! It is a sweet historic town with locally owned shops and modern comforts. The land is lush thanks to nightly rain fall. Waterfalls and black sand beaches are everywhere, along with an abundance of farms growing exotic organic produce! It was my dream to find a place in Hilo and Aloha Falls is located on the exclusive neighborhood called Reed's Island.
What makes this House unique
The view and sound of the waterfall made this home absolutely perfect. Also, the attention to detail in building.. All of the furniture, cabinetry, and artwork are handcrafted and locally produced. There are feelings of simplicity, peace, and profound elegance here.

Beautiful views, awesome neighborhood
Loved the view and the surrounding neighborhood. Very close to town yet very private, we enjoyed our stay. The beds and sheet were very comfortable. I did enjoy the frogs song each evening, they were not bothersome at all. I did make it down to the pond, but while there it was quite cold for Hawaii and I was not that enticed to maneuver the mud to get in. There were a few things that made me not give a 5 star which hopefully Sierra addresses for the next guests.
Jungle retreat with raging waterfall
What a magical time! The property has everything I could have asked for. It's airy and peaceful, great open kitchen and living room and screen room makes large family gatherings comfortable and fun. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and have plenty of room for storage. It's a beautiful street, about a mile from town and less to multiple waterfalls. I can't wait to return.
Clean, spacious, amazing, homey!
The place is in an amazing location, so close to the city but you feel like you're in the middle of a jungle with a waterfall and surrounding trees!
Such a nice place and so glad we had the opportunity to stay there
Mahalo, Samuel! Welcome back anytime!
This property is a destination in and of itself. It is so lovely you might be tempted not to venture out. But it's great location makes it easy to site see and then return. It is well equipped and quickly becomes a real home away from home. If you are renting a car, try to get one with a camera navigation to assist in getting down the steep driveway.
Super place to stay near Hilo
Our week at Aloha Falls was everything that we could have hoped for. The location is perfect...close to town but when you are there you feel like you are miles away. The home provided everything needed for a relaxing retreat. The furniture is oh so comfortable and the kitchen has everything necessary to make the best of the local farmer's market. Having coffee overlooking the waterfall each morning was the perfect way to begin the day. We spent a couple of afternoons reading down by the water in the screened-in deck there. The kayak was fun, too! I have to mention the property owner, Sierra. There were a few minor suggestions we made upon arrival and she took care of everything within a few hours. She really went out of her way to make sure we were happy and comfortable. Great house, great owner, great week!!
Mahalo for your review! At Aloha Falls, we greatly appreciate all guest feedback and are more than happy to address anything that needs attention.
Come back soon!
Relaxing wilderness retreat in Hilo!
We arrived at this tropical retreat stressed and in dire need of a vacation. Within one day of our one-week stay in this Idyllic setting melted away our stress and put us in touch with the incredible value of nature and downtime to just let all the stress slip away. Our daily ritual was sitting together on the magnificent screened in porch projected into a tropical stage--listening to the chirping frogs, watching the playful geckos, and staring into the depths of green for hours every morning with a cup of coffee and hours every night with a glass if wine. And yet close by is the quaint small town of Hilo with its vibrant market which we explored many times. A short drive away is Volcano national park with all its wonders and great hiking. Not far as well is magnificent Waipio Valley. We WILL return to this property for its relaxing setting, ideal kitchen and living spaces, comfortable sleeping arrangements, quiet neighborhood, and close proximity to the Hamakua coast! Thank you Sierra for your responsiveness and careful attention to detail!
